    For years I've been using io6's (superb btw) and various 510 dripping Atty's to test my mixes. The last in my stash has died and I cannot seem to locate them here in Australia. It would seem that people are actually using re-buildables or tanks in some form which is absurd! Having to clean out a previous flavour and or re wick is not productive at all.

    JuiceWhore use to carry the Joyetech 510 atty's but it seems no more. Does anyone know who carries these locally? Really don't want to order from the US..

    Thanks DogMan, I checked there and they're not listed anymore. I've looked at virtually all the major OZ companies, seems most use Clearo's or RDA's. May have to import them..

    I have a heap of KangaTech T3d's and coils also Inokin 16D's which our locals like. I use them for flavour testing. If you want some PM me and I we could arrange something.

    Thanks Old Grump but I have a ton of Evods and Clearo's. Just want the old school atty's like Avid Cisco HH, Joyetech 510 or io6's that are so simple to test with. A few short dry burns and or a little VG and you're ready to try a new flavour. I know this is old school but cannot fathom WHY people don't use them who DIY?

    Yep I know where you are comming from. A lot of the old school tanks are good. I also have this one. [​IMG]
    A Tritank clearomiser which is also old school and you can put three flavours into three seperate compartments but coils for this one now are hard to find.

    A nice cheap RDA is the way to go, IMO.

    You do not have to rewick or wash anything, simply vape until almost dry hitting, then add a few drops of the new flavor, vape until almost dry again & then add the new flavor in to test.
    The few drops initially of new flavor will have some of the old flavor mixed with it but the 2nd time you add it, it will be all the new flavor that comes through.
    The disposable 510 atties are more costly than a bit of wick & wire to replace, so you save $ & get a better idea of what the flavor is like because the 510 disposables often used nichrome wire, which for me made juice taste metalic.

    Yep I do that now with that fake Tsunami I got from FT. I use it as a dripper. Test the flavour. No re wicking needed. Good one @ Noe I forgot about it. Getting Old

    i don't use flavours, but wickless rda are popular for this

    just use fancy wire art coils, which should hold a few drops with no wick, dry burn between

    but i think charles puts the toot in tootle puffer, so flavour would be a very different experience to clearos and a tested juice that passes rda test mat fail in clearo

    Maybe I am missing what is needed here but what about some silica wick in a dripper?

    RxW is an option, since it can be dry burned okay

    depending on the ADC topper though, the flavour of silica and RxW are very different to most other things, not bad, just not a gauge of how it will taste in day to day vaping

    Thanks everyone, so many choices and yes, I'm old school and only ever used atty's for testing juices like HH Cisco, and my fav the io6's.
    Noe, thanks for the tip. (Special thanks to Old Grump too) Okay, I think my head is being stubborn and for a number of years have refused to re look at alternatives for testing juices because I always felt anything other than a plain old 510 style Atty was too much work. I actually have an IGO-W or L dripping atty and a ton of various wire, cotton and silica wicks. Even have a coil master tool box I've never used! Used a few others years ago, like my favourite the Penelope which was once a highly respected Re-buildable.

    Maybe I need to re look at your suggestion. Any advice on brand, model would be appreciated as this is not my forte...

    I started a couple of threads in here over 12 months ago,
    Looking for eGo-T atties as I found them to be a good stealth vape.
    I did get a couple PIF to me.
    But no vendor in Oz had any.
    I bought 20 from Health Cabin in China, then they had none.
    Checked all the Chinese venders that people in here reccomended.
    Even tried Joye Tech.

    No Joy, so I had to switch to RTAs, which taste great, but not much good for stealth vaping on a plane or in the terminal.

    I quite like the AEOLUS (clone version with AFC) it's a really good flavor RDA & has top airflow, which makes it leak resistant.
    If you want something smaller I suggest The Stumpy RDA, another good flavor atty & more suited to testing than to all day use like the AEOLUS.
    Either will work well for juice testing, The Stumpy has side AFC & is not leak resistant, it won't leak if you use it correctly but don't put it in your pocket, the AEOLUS carry it any way you like except upside down & you should have virtually no leaks, the only time it'll leak is if you carry it around over filled & on its side.

    Appreciate your input Noe, I'll be looking into these tomorrow. Think I know of the Stumpy but will spend time tomorrow doing research on these. Again, my thanks..

    Even clone stumpies are as rare as hens teeth now
